Stress tests of the 2k^2 proptotypes at IFAE

Friday, Jan 14, 2022

The 2K^2 prototypes have been tested at IFAE. One of the devices has undergone 15 thermal cycles (between 50 Kelvin and room temperature) and another one is already at more than 20 cycles. The devices, after the initial set and stress show good stability in the bonds with minimal degradation. Additional thermal cycle tests will continue for the next weeks.
